Dear Parents/Guardians and Staff:
We have recently been informed of a confirmed case of pertussis (whooping cough) at Amherst County High School. Pertussis is a contagious disease caused by bacteria that affects people of all ages characterized by severe coughing. It is spread through the air in droplets produced during sneezing and/ or coughing. Although pertussis is usually not a life-threatening illness, it can be very serious in infants (less than one year of age) and in individuals with compromised immune systems or chronic medical conditions.
